comfortable, peaceful and friendly owners

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The listing description was accurate. The property was clean and comfortable. There was more than enough seating, equipment for the the 5 of us.

We were welcomed by the owner and given lots of information of things to do near by. The guest card they provided gave us good discount on local amenities.

We really enjoyed the swimming pool/spa at Berchtesgarden.

The trip up to Eagle's Nest was really spectacular.

The natural swimming pool was also really beautiful on a sunny day.

My family (husband and kids) and our friends family with kids as well spent one lovely week in this beautiful holiday home.

Johanna, the owner, is wonderful to work with, she a most charming hostess we ever met (and we travel a LOT) She gladly answered many questions before we arrived and was very welcoming and extremely helpful once we were in her home.

The home has everything one needs for their stay inside the home, and out. The home and kitchen is well equipped and maintained. The rooms lovely furnished, tidy and absolutely clean.

There are plenty to see and to do in surrounding area. A large folder provides all the information one could possibly want to make the shopping,sightseeing and traveling.

We had a terrific time at the house and traveling around. It was simply perfect and fantastic!!! Everything that we needed and wanted for our winter vacation.

Dear, Johanna We wold like to express our deepest thank you for a wonderful time we had at your home. It was just everything that we had hoped for and even more! It was a memorable experience that our familys will never forget.

We didn't want to leave when it was time to go.

Ein Glücksgriff für Hundebesitzer

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind immer auf der Suche nach Unterkünften die uns die Möglichkeit geben unsere beiden Labrador mit zu nehmen. Hier haben wir ein tolles Domizil gefunden. Das Berchtesgadener Land ist uns nicht fremd und somit waren dann auch gleich wieder Heimatgefühle vorhanden.

Wir wurden bei der Ankunft schon gleich sehr freundlich empfangen und in kurzer Zeit waren wir dann auch schon Mieter dieser tollen Wohnung.

Es fehlte uns an Nichts, alles war für eine tolle Woche vorbereitet.

Die Zimmer sehr sauber, und stilvoll eingerichtet. Man konnte direkt auf die Weide schauen wo sich die Pferde mit Sicherheit wohl fühlen.

Innerhalb des Reiterhofs hat man die Möglichkeit ungestört mit den Hunden seine Runden zu drehen sowie auch ein paar Meter weiter außerhalb im kühlen Bach sich zu erfrischen.

800m entfernt gibt es ein Einkaufszentrum also Versorgung geregelt.

In kurzen Entfernungen sind viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sowie Attraktionen zu erreichen. Mein Gesamtfazit: Wir kommen wieder!!!

Wir würden uns sehr freuen, Sia wieder bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen.
